14m.

Rockfax Description
A big butch diagonal that originally started by climbing the first 4m of The File creating a rope-work nightmare. Climb Bat Out of Hell to its second break. Now make a strength-sapping hand-traverse left to reach the crux of The Rasp. Up this to the niche then traverse left under the roofs to a finish through the exposed notch. © Rockfax

βeta: Did this last week. Stunning route. A particularly hard move in the middle, moving past the diagonal part of the break between BOOH and The Rasp. Certainly 6a, not 5c. Well protected.

James Oswald ?Sep, 2017 Lead Tough. First go I got halfway across the traverse, couldn't commit and jumped off. A cam ripped and hit me in the helmet, cracking it! Second go I got a bit further but still couldn't commit. One to come back for.
